Dimitri Smerdyakov is an associate of Nick Fury who was assigned to work with Talos and monitor Peter Parker in Austria. Smerdyakov also worked alongside Soren and Mysterio, who had tricked Talos and Soren into thinking he was from another dimension.
Smerdyakov was introduced to Spider-Man when 'Fury' took Parker from his hotel to a base where the team was present. After Parker turned down the mission of stopping the rampaging Elementals, Smerdyakov took him back to the hotel.
After learning that Spider-Man could not be seen in Europe, and that Parker himself was on a class trip, Talos hijacked his summer vacation in order for Parker's class to go to Prague, so Parker would be able to fight Molten Man when it attacked. Smerdyakov served as the bus driver, and did not speak at all to anyone as he drove them towards Prague. During the ride, Flash Thompson claimed that Smerdyakov was his personal driver on his blog, although Smerdyakov ignored Thompson and continued driving. When the bus stooped for a break, Smerdyakov pointed Parker to a room where the teen could be given his Stealth Suit.
When Parker accidentally called a drone strike on the bus using E.D.I.T.H., in an attempt to erase a picture from Brad Davis's phone, Parker used his Synthetic Webbing to yank the steering wheel from Smerdyakov to avoid a missile from the drone, before leaping out of the bus and destroying the drone.
Dimitri Smerdyakov is silent and stoic, not communicating with anybody, and calmly ignoring the pestering of Flash Thompson. However, Smerdyakov was shown to portray shock, surprise and outrage when Peter Parker was forced to pull the steering wheel of the tour bus from him to avoid a drone missile.

Behind the Scenes
- Director Jon Watts revealed in an interview back in July 2017 that it would be great for the Chameleon to appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home as a villain before he settled on Mysterio. However, while Dimitri Smerdyakov was featured in the finished film, he never becomes the Chameleon.
